Make-up or graphics
« on: May 07, 2010, 05:07:17 pm »
So I was watching the movie with one of my friends and she says, I heard that the directors just used really good make-up for the actors/actresses. And I told her that they used special suite kind of things and had a boom mike in front of their mouths and a special green screen thing portrayed all their expressions and facil emotions. But it got me thinking, were there any scenes that did require make-up?
P.S. I'm not sure if this is in the right forum, so if a moderator needs to move it, go ahead!

Eywa Ngahu!!

You ask me any good movie ( scifi wise ) will use what ever trick works best for the situation I agree computer cg is just getting amazing but you just can't mimic certain things. My option both were used to achive the effect needed I.e. As jar jar was tech on set for the actors to interact with it help the cg artist as well in the movements of the actor playing him, so I say both.

I doubt they would of mixed CG and makeup in the final cut, it would of been impossible to get the makeup to visually match the rendered version, for obvious reasons.

No make up was used for the effects, Dana Peters said so himself, make up would have been used on human characters (as all human characters have make up. They wore the GIMP suits or whatever they are called to track there motion and put the motion into an image on a computer, everything was done on computer, no green screen no nothing, all they did was capture actors motions, drew the character (Human characters didnt require this) and put them in with a complete didgital computer drawn background

I believe you mean a Motion Capture suit, or MOCAP.  A Gimp suit is an entirely different thing.  ;D

I love that behind-the-scenes video, and I also appreciate that they call their process "performance capture" instead of just "motion capture." Having the one camera affixed in front of each actor's face leaves little to the imagination for the artists, which means more of the performance can be captured and translated to CG, as opposed to making the artists guess.

The data captured by the camera in front of the face is directly applied to the computer model. You see the green dots the actors get drawn in their face? Those are markers used by the animation software to transfer the facial expression to the computer modell. There's no additional CG art done on the motion data. But what must be done is appliying virtual makeup. Or adding tears. According to JC Zoe Saldana the tear we see after she rescued Jake from suffocation was real, but since the performance capture system couldn't capture that, the artists had to re-add it.
